Nephi residents need to clean up their garbage or collectors will stop picking up substandard refuse.

The garbage collector will begin leaving notes for those who violate a new city ordinance, but those who don't clean up their act will be hauling their own trash.Under terms of the new ordinance, those using non-regulation trash containers, placing dead animals (or parts of them) in the garbage can or expecting the sanitation man to return to get garbage placed at the curb after he has already passed will do without garbage collection.

Garbage cans be placed at the roadside by 8 a.m. on the day of collection. They must be placed between the curb and the asphalt next to the traveled portion of the street.
